The Department of Public School 
Drawing 

For the Regular and Special Courses 

Drawing, when properly presented, becomes one of the most 
important factors in the education of the child. It brings the 
home to the school; makes the workman a philosopher, and 
opens the eyes of the child to the beauties of nature's secrets. 

The teacher needs (1) a knowledge of composition for selec- 
tion and arrangment; (2) a knowledge of the principles, for 
tone balance and relation; (3) a knowledge of form for object, 
animal, and life sketching; (4) a knowledge of design with 
which to add beauty to the busy work for the child; (5) a 

1G 



knowledge of simple perspective, by which the child learns how 
he sees trees or the road in his walks; (6) a knowledge of land- 
scape, for the mysteries of night and morning, sunset and noon ; 
(7) a knowledge of story-telling for the creative imagination of 
the child; (8) a thorough knowledge of material possible to be 
used in the school-room. 

This course gives an acquaintance with the material used for 
drawing; acquaintance with the material used for the Applied

Department of Instrumental Music 

Dora M. Klepfer, Director 

A course in piano study is now an established feature of the 
work of the Teachers College of Indianapolis. This Department 
is in charge of Dora M. Klepfer, who has had much successful 
experience in teaching adults and children, both individually 
and in groups. 

The period of the first few lessons in music is a crisis in a 
child's life. The impressions made upon the mind between the 
age of five and twelve years are the strongest because of the 
child's susceptibility to the slightest influence at that time. 

In the early study, pupils are grouped in small classes and 
taught by means of symbols. These classes will be formed firm

Library Facilities 



The library, which contains more than seven thousand vol- 
umes, offers excellent facilities for reference in the various 
departments of study, and in general literature. Upon request, 
the librarian of the Public Library of Indianapolis lends to the 
school whatever additional books are needed for special investi- 
gation in any department. A number of standard educational 
periodicals are taken regularly. 



Good teachers will find no difficulty in securing positions. 
The demand is yearly increasing. The College cannot obligate 
itself, however, to secure positions for graduates.
